#109 The unexpected is often what you remember

One morning we woke up and decided to just take the car, drive north and take a small road up in the mountains (hills). No plan. No internet. No map. Just drive and see where we ended up. The road was carved in the slopes and took us through a fantastic landscape. The views were…

# 108 Back to Ireland

In 2005 I made my first – and so far only – trip to Ireland. It was a short trip, filled with new impressions and – of course – photography. My camera of choice back then was a Fujifilm S2 Pro – a 6MP digital SLR, based on a Nikon body. Little did I know…

#107 An M4 and a roll of T-Max 100

Back in June things started to go back to normal again. Covid-19 suddenly did not feel like that much of a threat anymore. As the summer got closer – Corona went further away. We started to get reckless – and now it has finally caught up with us. I went out i Linköping, with my…

#106 Covid-Safe Saturday

Saturday and the world is heading into a “second wave” of Covid-19. We try to do things where we can keep our distances to other people. The driving range in November is a good place to be…as long as the temperatur is reasonably ok. We were all alone… After lunch we took a walk in…

# 105 What to do on a sunday?

Sunday. The Corona Virus is again shutting down parts of the society in Sweden. The area where I live is one of the parts that now has a rising amount of infected. Those who can should work from home and we must stay out of stores, librarys and other public places. What can you take…

#104 Making Collections

I have added a new section to my site; Collections. When I was a boy I collected different things like stamps and coins. I don´t think that is something kids do today. I still have my old albums in a box in the garage. Every tenth year I open the box and look at them….

#103 A morning outdoors

This morning I woke up early and set out to shoot some pictures on the countryside nearby. I made some coffee and a sandwich and packed in my bag, along with my Fujifilm X-T2 and Leica M. I had hoped for a cold morning when the mist is hanging low over the fields as the…

#102 The Elmar 2,8/50

Today I took this nice Leica-duo for a walk in the sun – the Leica M240 and a Leica Elmar 2,8/50. The Elmar is one of the more affordable Leica lenses – if there is such a thing. It is my only Leica mede lens at the moment – the other two are Zeiss made….

#101 Film vs Digital

A while ago I made a post about film simulations for Fujifilm cameras. Now I have made a small test to compare to real film. I used a Fuji X100V simulating Kodak Porta 400 and a Leica M4 with a roll of Kodak Porta 400. You can slide between the film version and the digital…

#100 As good as it gets

There was this magical evening on our trip to France in 2015. After a perfect day on the beach, we had returned to our camper. The children were tired as the sun was setting, and we started to prepare for the night. We had stopped in a place called Veules-les-Roses – a small village with…

#99 Honfleur

Continuing on the theme of the last post; Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and France. One of the places I wanted to visit on the 2015-trip was Honfleur. I had heard a lot about the city and how beautiful it is. A must see place for a photographer. An artists town. And I am sure it is…or…

#98 The Fujifilm X-Pro 1

The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 – my second Fuji-X camera. I bought it with the XF18/2 and XF35/1,4 back in 2013. It was – and is – a fantastic camera. All the pictures in this post were shot with it. I still think that the picture quality is great – seven years later. Up until I…
